Glow Bowling Birthday Party

Join the folks at the Early Learning Coalition of St. Lucie County for a Glow Bowling Birthday Party at Superplay in Port St. Lucie on Wednesday, July 31, from 7-9 PM. Your $10 admission includes two games of bowling and bowling shoes, birthday cake & lemonade, all to celebrate the 20th birthday of the Early Learning Coalition, in support of early childhood education, in St. Lucie County.

No bowling pledge sheets needed here as this is a P-A-R-T-Y not a bowl-a-thon, but you can bring the whole family out for glowingly great time.

We want you to party like it's 1999, which is when the ELC was established to promote early childhood education and administer the free Voluntary Pre-K program in Florida.
